Auchengree Farm

Auchengree Farm are a farm shop based in Ayrshire Scotland. They are a classic 'best kept secret' of a business, those in the know love them and their incredible products (if you like steak pies they are unbeatable, and my dad describes their sausage rolls as 'deadly', which is high praise indeed). The trouble is that being a secret, best kept or otherwise, is not that great for business. Enter the new overhauled Magento e-commerce system, designed by me as well as produced. This system features a fully integrated Wordpress install which utilises the Magento templates to deliver the theme. System Features also include; jQuery text sizer Modal windows for logins Payment Sense payment processing Content slider integrated with the backend Modal mini ... Read more

Walk in Baths

This was a custom Magento site which was themed in order to blend in with an existing Wordpress installation. The site was styled to match so that the transition from the Wordpress installation through to the shop felt relative seemless. Features include a custom contact/enquiries form, Worldpay payment integration and per-item shipping costs. There are various little jQuery features which add to the site user experience. Read more

Queens Diamond Jubilee

This was a massive job which involved me working in-house with Shipley based agency Igniyte. First of all the Wordpress site was built and launched. Custom design based on Paul Blandford's excellent work, it featured custom advertising widget positions, MailChimp integration, an interactive map for street parties including a custom form which auto-generated posts in Draft form. When reviewed a Google maps marker was automatically produced and the map recentered. After launch the Magento site got built. Multi currency (Pound, Dollar and Euro) with daily automated exchange rate updates, Worldwide shipping using Royal Mail and ParcelForce, Shipping Tracking, Cron based backup, Google Shopping, Profit reports, Admin pricing over-rides, Vodafone promotion tie-in 100% order discounts, ...

Allardyce Online

A brand new Magento build featuring a raft of nice features. Include a homepage Javascript image slider and jQuery Featured Products carousel. The homepage also features Sonos product videos streamed on a custom FLV player. Extensions used in the site include the Aitoc Checkout which streamlines the checkout to remove the shipping address and shipping options section. I've also used ColorMage, an extension which allows for configurable product image switching. Another useful extension allows categories with 1 product to display the product page directly from main navigation anchors. Read more

Beauty Lounge

This was a rescue job on a Magento 1.3 site which had been poorly done. The previous agency had some nice design and content ideas, and had done an acceptable job of customising the Magento Modern theme. However, the SEO was absolutely appalling (all the content had been rendered as images), and there were a whole raft of useability mistakes that meant the site wasn't performing commercially. All of the content was re-rendered using HTML and CSS. The home page was reconfigured for Featured Products. The taxation was set-up, and the images and product page layout redone. The default callouts were removed. Shipping was set up and the cart was customised to include the shipping cost at the cart stage. ... Read more
